Avenue Road

This 1st floor extension represented a significant challenge: to produce a space that respected the constraints imposed by virtue of being in a conservation area, whilst building over a ground floor flat owned by others, with no opportunity to underpin the existing foundations below.

The new construction is a lightweight steel frame with half leaf brick cladding, all sitting on a ring beam that is resisting the outward thrust from this structure, allowing the team to build directly on the nine inch wall below.

The triple sash Accoya windows are, in fact, double sashes over a fixed glazed balustrade, transforming this new dining room into a terrace during the summer when the sashes are fully lowered.
